Just a hunch that this may end up being the problem.

Math is not how I would have done it, but it gets you there. I don't know how much time until the race, how hard you have been working and/or...

Interesting Andy. I would think 90 minutes for 2.5/10/25 would be very possible for elites but as always in triathlon, it would depend on the course.

But using Middle to Front of Pack results...

Oh, the point was that they combined races that already existed. So the 2.4 mile swim was already the distance of the Waikiki Rough Water Swim, same for bike race and marathon. They were individual...

Hey Andy, by skewed I am assuming you mean that the events are not equal in time raced. I guess that is because of the origin of the long distance triathlon race. Swimmers in Hawaii used to debate...

Good for you to be swimming every day Martin. I think lower SPL only, as a goal, is probably the most common misinterpretation of TI Swimming. My interpretation is that a goal (one of a few) for...

JT-

Exactly my point. My whole problem was technique. I was in decent shape from the bike and swim training (left that part out), but could not do the swim.

Sorry for adding on, but Coach Suzanne relayed to me a drill/technique Terry told her about that I could use to make sure I didn't injure my foot further while swimming. The "Toe Tap" drill.

I would write your basic plans as swim only plans, WU, MS, CD- minutes only. Those are available on line anyway.

I am assuming a Sprint Tri.

For the "For Pay" Plans, I would write...

I missed it if you explained your new signature. Posting latest PR"s I guess, is this one each 25m, spl of 16, held for 100m tt?

Hi Ashby,
